I made a set of these earlier to go towards a charity auction to benefit those affected by the recent disasters in Japan. They were so fun and easy to make that I think I'll be making a few more! Smiley



Made with perler beads, painted pots, model magic (to "fill" the pots), and covered with craft foam that's been textured to look like dirt.

These are great for anyone who has a black thumb like me  Wink

AAAAAAAAAAH AMAZING! I've just finally accepted that my peat pellet sprouts really have died, and was bemoaning the idea of moving to a new apartment with no planties to adorn my balcony. Problem solved! Fabulous idea, thank you!

These are awesome! I was just telling my bachelor (and video game geek) friend that his new apt needs some plants, but he said he'd just kill 'em. I'm gonna have to make him some of these.

What a cool idea!  I should do something lie this up, considering I have black thumb too.  Smiley
